When a poor girl falls in love with an army officer her mother pretends to be the owner of the hotel where she works as a chambermaid.
Boasting an "all colored cast," this is one of the few documents of America's African-American talent in a time when the big budgets were reserved for white stars.

Subject: Important American History
Shame the peron who put this up hasnt put many relevant tags on with it. If you were looking for any material relevant to Afro-americans for research purposes you would have to dig deep to find this. It shows the status issues of black folks of the era etc. Deservs to be seen by more people
